This card amuses me. WotC keeps putting the Giant Growth effect on various cards and then adding whatever the set mechanic is to the card. In the end, none of them get much play. Resize may change that, because it's easily reusable. The biggest problem though, is that an aggressive deck won't want to leave the mana open for it in many cases. In limited though, I'd love to have a couple of these in my deck.

Just about the only solid combat trick in Coldsnap, this is Limited gold simply because it plays like a removal spell for Green. Recover is a passable ability, but you don't even need it to make this card good. Goodness knows it helps though.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 2.5
Limited- 3.5

Giant Growth variants have ranged from very good (Sudden Strength) to very bad (Monstrous Growth). This one is one of the very good ones. Maybe the best in some ways. Recover is an incredibly abusive mechanic that can allow you to reuse your spells many times over the course of the game. Oftentimes the only limiting factor is how much mana you have available. The cheap cost and recover of Resize makes it particularly strong. I've had games where I've won out of nowhere by Resizing an evasion creature multiple times in one attack and going in for a big kill. Resize is definitely worth a first pick in a lot of situations.

Constructed Rating - 2.3
